Hi Members --  Our next meeting is Thursday, Aug 15, sponsored by Motio, world-famous for MotioPI Pro and MotioCI software that is now available in the IBM Cognos installer.  

Research has shown that 50% of all Cognos implementations contain more than 4350 reports. Without a full Inventory of what is in your Cognos environment, along with how complex your content is, it's just not possible to make an accurate assessment and determine the effort needed for an upgrade.  Experience also shows that reduction is critical in upgrades. Without reduction, it is hard to execute this project quickly and without breaking the bank!  Motio will present how to find all of your candidates for deletion and clean up! During the session, they will show you how you can fully understand your Cognos implementation, reduce, and tee up to modernize your assets with the new capabilities of the all-new IBM Cognos Analytics! For more information on this topic, go to and become a Cognos Ninja!
